Are you required to yield to pedestrians in marked or unmarked crosswalks?

Drivers in Oregon must stop and yield to pedestrians in both marked and unmarked crosswalks. Every intersection is a crosswalk, even when it is not marked. A pedestrian is considered to be crossing the road when any part of their body or extension moves onto the road. When approaching a crosswalk, use caution and watch both sides of the street for pedestrians.

You are required to use your headlights in certain conditions. Which of the following is an example of such a condition?

Drivers in Oregon must use headlights (1) between sunset and sunrise or (2) when visibility is less than 1000 feet Keep in mind you are required to dim your lights to low beam when (1) within 500 feet of an oncoming vehicle and (2) within 350 feet of a vehicle traveling in your direction

What do flashing yellow or amber lights on a school bus mean?

Flashing amber lights are used by school buses in Oregon and many other states to indicate that they are slowing down and preparing to stop. The amber lights are generally activated 100-300 feet before the bus will stop depending on the speed limit.

Hazard light use is permitted while driving in Oregon unless otherwise posted

Which passengers have to wear a seat belt?

In Oregon, the driver and all passengers age 8 and older or taller than 4 feet 9 inches must wear a seat belt. Violation of the seat belt law is a standard offense. In addition, the child passenger safety law also requires that all children wear an appropriate child restraint. What is appropriate depends on the size, height and weight of the child.

Does Oregon use the Point System?

Most states use a Point System to keep unsafe drivers off the roads, but Oregon does not. However, the state records each moving violation on your record and will suspend your license if you accumulate 5 or more moving violations within any 2-year period.

What should you do before driving in snowy conditions?

Removing snow and ice will not only make it easier for you to see the road ahead. It will also make it easier for other road users to see you. While it can be beneficial to let your engine warm up before driving, it's unnecessary to let it warm up for 40 minutes. Checking your tire tread depth is important, but it is something you should do when driving in all weather conditions and not just snowy conditions.

When are studded tires permitted?

Studded tires have studs embedded in the tread that provide added traction. They are permitted in Oregon between November 1 to March 31.

When may you turn left on a red light?

The only time you're permitted to turn left on a red light in Oregon is when turning from a one-way street onto another one-way street. Before turning, yield to any pedestrians/vehicles lawfully proceeding through the intersection and make sure there aren't any signs prohibiting the turn

How far away from a school bus loading or unloading passengers do vehicles have to stop?


Vehicles from both directions have to stop for school buses loading or unloading passengers. School buses in Oregon use flashing red lights and a mechanical stop arm to indicate that the bus is stopped to load or unload school children. Do not proceed until the red lights have stopped flashing. A stop is not required when driving on the opposite side of a divided highway separated by an unpaved median strip or barrier.

When should you begin slowing down when exiting the freeway?

When exiting a freeway or interstate, you may cause a rear-end collision if you begin slowing down too early as other drivers may not expect it. Wait until after entering the deceleration lane before slowing down.

You’re driving in the mountains. Which statement is true?


When driving at high altitudes, the climate is likely to be much colder. Warning signs are placed on many roads that tend to freeze a lot, but not on all of them. Remember that the roads may be icy even during summer, so make sure to look for spots of ice on the road ahead!

If this sign is displayed and you are driving in the right-most lane:


Drivers in the right-most lane must turn right.

Drivers in the middle lane must proceed straight ahead.

Drivers in the left-most lane must turn left.

What will probably happen if you travel during rush hour?


Try to avoid driving during rush hour if possible. Traffic jams occur frequently which will delay your journey to your destination. Rush hour is generally during early mornings and after work times.

Are you allowed to park to the left of this sign on a Sunday at 11 pm?


This sign indicates that parking is prohibited in the direction of the arrow at all times except Sundays and holidays.

Will using cruise control lead to lower fuel consumption?

Cruise control will automatically control your vehicles speed by controling the throttle of the car. Driving at a steady speed lowers the fuel consumption.  Cruise controls should only be used on high speed roads where traffic is driving at a steady speed.

At a crash scene, what can you do to help a person who’s unconscious?


If you notice that a person is unconscious, you need to check that he/she is breathing normally. Look and listen for breathing, look for chest movements, and feel for breath on your cheek.
